I am going to have my first job related traveling at the end of the month. It's like two and a half days. I'm pretty nervous for a few reasons:

01 Working on getting my 12 year old husky taken care of while I'm away.

02 I prefer my work and personal time separated. This will present challenges to that.

03 A myriad of food allergies. If I'm responsible for myself, I can make it work but all breakfasts and one dinner are provided by the company.

So I am going to make a baguette.
Wish me luck!
I will conquer this fear, then eat it.

I hate driving, and i hate it for the fact that it scares me...

I'm scared either for:

- Being hit by a reckless driver (so much of them in the city)
- Hit somebody by accident (either persons and animals)
- Being mugged (happens a lot in here...)

So, yeah driving scares me a bit...

@henryeatscereal (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=1572) - For real. For me, if it's not about getting hit or hitting other drivers and pedestrians and either getting seriously injured, killed or flat-out incarerated, it also has a lot to do with my fear of getting lost. It's bad enough that I have a horrible sense of direction, especially when it comes to new and unfamiliar places to start with.

Thankfully, I live in a place where driving actually isn't a necessity due to so much public transit, but should I get around to doing it on my own, I'd most likely just stay in and very near my hometown.

I am a bit surprised that this wasn't brought up yet. On the other hand, I guess it took me a while because I used to never have to worry about it until finally donating to ETS recently.

Anyway. Accidentally clicking "Facepalm" instead of "Like". Thankfully, it hasn't happened... yet. But that probably means that it would be best for me to stick to PCs and laptops instead of resorting to smartphones whenever it comes to liking posts.

Not really a little thing sometimes, nor does it scare me or bum me out all the time, but I still got to say, messing up in general.

Whether big or small, especially in public setting online and offline, it's just very shameful and I just end up feeling very stupid. (Kind of like in a "bombing an important speech/presentation/interview" type of way. *I was always like this my entire life.*)

I know mistakes can still be learning opportunities though. (Although mistakes are sometimes still the very worst way to learn things.) But they don't hurt any less. I suppose it still comes from me still basing who, what and how I am on what others say. I'm also still working on that yet again.

The idea of getting my drivers license back. It's been about 5 years now since i lost it (dui) and am on the verge of getting everything sorted out. I've been kinda sandbagging it a bit the closer i get. Ill have it all but paper work done here next week. It's an odd thing.

Paranormal events. For example, Seeing a chair move on its own when you are the only one home is fucking terrifying. Feeling like an unseen force is watching you, taunting you...confirmation when your cat sees what you see. Fiancée is home for some of it, not all- I seem to be the target. Events have happened off/on my entire life, but activity has increased over the past 2 years. Most recently had a lot of activity in June after nothing for a few months. Lost a lot of sleep and became a nervous wreck. I'm not entirely innocent, I dabble with energy and strange things, just moved across the street from a huge old cemetery.

i don't go into the "in the headlines" section of the board because i'm always afraid it'll make me too angry.

but i am fucking FURIOUS right now at trump.

i personally don't believe we should have a military, but if we do, anyone who wants to serve should be allowed. saying trans people aren't allowed to serve is tantamount to saying we're not people, and that is unacceptable. i am so afraid that we're heading toward a world where anyone who isn't cis, straight, and white is going to be rounded up into concentration camps.

Nobody said it was "inexcusable." But this is the same group of old men who had "Don't Ask Don't Tell" and thought PMS might weaken women's abilities, so your sudden anger when it applies to YOU is why change is slow.

Bill Clinton passed Don't Ask Don't Tell in 1994 and it was in effect until 2011. Change is slow and it ebbs and flows but people pushing for human rights never give up on any change regarding anyone whose rights are affected.

Even Lindsey Graham is calling for a hearing vs. an announcement via a tweet.

Anyone's human and/or civil rights being denied - whether it's being shot by a Cop for no good reason, or the denial or lack of housing and schools, or lack of medical care, or it's unequal pay, or any other form of discrimination - angers me more than I can express, nearly every single day, and it SCARES me how these things are getting worse and not better. Things like this new transgender military announcement makes all "marginalized" people (the elderly, the sick, minorities, the disabled, LGBTQ, and a whole list) scared of what will happen next.

Nothing this idiot President does surprises me anymore. Which scares me.

Yes! The mental back peddling you do; "maybe I didn't see that" or "maybe I bumped into the chair" (from 6 feet away - yeah right) only increases confusion and awareness. I strongly believe that animals can sense things. Do your occurrences happen often? Feel free to PM me.

@elevenism (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=2475) @pretty.hate.machine (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=5889) Maybe this belongs in the Ghosts thread?

I've always had a fear of open closet doors due to vivid nightmares from when I had leukemia as a kid to my mid 20s all involving evil things coming from my closet door that was left open. No, I'm not gay :)
So it was programmed in me to always keep them closed when you left the room or went to sleep. I was in a relationship and married for about 7 years. My ex would always goof on me (in good fun) about this. Well, we lived in a townhouse with a walk in closet for a couple years and one day, my husky, who was probably 5 at the time was in the bedroom standing right in the walk in closet's doorway staring into it. My ex asked him what he was doing. He ignored her. I approached him and as I got close he started to growl, snarl and show his teeth to whatever the fuck he was looking at. He NEVER does this.

I closed the door and my ex never teased me about closet doors again. I still catch him staring at nothing, looking concerned, but not like he was that day. I'm not religious but I have seen things I can't explain. The crazier side of me wonders if maybe one of the times I was near death's door as a sick kid, something evil caught a ride out with me. I don't know. Someone call the Winchesters ;)

Swykk, OMG, I had the SAME THING for MANY YEARS throughout my childhood!!

It started from watching too many horror flicks (the biggest culprit being the 70s made-for-TV gem, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" with Kim Darby), and I HAD to have the closet door(s) open wherever it was dark or I was sleeping. I finally forced myself to knock it off. Good thing, because open closet doors drive my Husband nuts. However, one of my cats loves to hang out in closets and knows how to slide the doors open, so now we CAN'T fully close any closet door unless we check to see if there's a cat in there. :)

I mostly bite my fingernails out of anxiety and habit alone. Been trying to stop it though.

Anyhoo, I used to be scared of ghosts and satanic/occult stuff as a kid, and the internet made that kind of shit very accessable, so I would be reading and watching stuff about it at 3 AM and go to bed completely paranoid.
Then I got used to it as I got older, I started to become interested in it all, but I still get paranoid or creeped out when a certain thing gets under my skin good.

Realizing far too late that I'm way in over my head and that I should've quit while I was ahead a very long time ago. However, it's sometimes more awkward and regretful than scary sometimes, but it still freaks me out nonetheless. It's also been the story of most of my life so far.
